Rotary Torso

This machine does a great job of isolating the obliques. Still, we're not big fans of this machine unless you're careful to use strict form. Do it smoothly and you'll be fine; however, constant, weighted, and uncontrolled rotation can cause your back more harm than the good it will do for your abs.

Rotary torso start/finish. Rotary torso midrange.

Here is how you properly perform a rotary torso:

2. Position your arms behind each arm pad. Get ready to twist like a young Elvis.

3. Slowly twist your body until you can twist no farther.

4. Pause for a second and slowly return to the starting position.

5. Repeat on the other side.

The following is a list of don'ts:

> Use your arms to assist you.

> Let the weights you're lifting slam on the stack below.

The following is a do:

> Maintain a slow, controlled movement throughout the rotation.

People with back problems shouldn't use this machine. Instead, stick with floor exercises where you have greater control. The twisting motion can aggravate a back condition.
